The Jews, The War And After - An important publication against the Nazi race theory published amidst World War II, addressing at length "Palestine and the Arab issue", by Phineas Horowitz. Published by Lloyd Cole London 1943 - first edition. Rare copy with original illustrated dust jacket.

"The Nazi race theory has no factual basis" - An important publication against the Nazi race theory published as thousands of Jewish people were being led to slaughter by the Nazis influenced by the destructive race theory. The author explains the basic claims of the Nazi race theory and shows how the inevitable conclusion derived from it is the actual destruction of the Jewish people. Through analyzing and critically examining each foundation of the race theory regarding the definition of "people", "nation", "heredity" etc., he demonstrates the falsehood at the core of this theory, especially in the writings of the Nazi propagandist Julius Streicher, and the internal contradictions in attempting to construct "supporting theories" that lead to the predetermined conclusion of Aryan racial superiority. Regarding the Jewish people, the author shows their immense contribution to humanity in all fields by presenting an image completely opposite to that which the Nazis sought to portray across occupied Europe. He proves through writings of non-Jewish historians the extensive influence of the Jewish people on humanity since ancient times. Practically, in attempts to solve the problem of Jewish persecution, the author writes that only the Land of Israel and mass Jewish immigration can solve the problem of antisemitism which from threat and incitement became actual destruction of Jews in European countries, and that the difficulties faced regarding Arabs and British in the Land of Israel are minor and resolvable compared to Nazi persecution of Jews in European countries. In the last chapters, the author refers at length to "Palestine and the Arab issue".

Impressive cover design: a group of pioneers marching with hoes alongside a group of ghetto Jews with bags on their backs and walking sticks set against a backdrop of the Magen David and sun's rays heralding redemption of the Jewish people. The author was a prominent figure in the Anglo-Jewish world during WWII.

138 p. Hardcover with original dust jacket. Open tears on top and bottom edges of dust jacket. Good condition.
